Monday's Leftovers: What Would You Do With Leftover Enchiladas?

Monday's Leftovers: What Would You Do With Leftover Enchiladas?

When I decided to write about enchiladas for last night's Sunday Dinner, I wasn't totally sure how I would spin them into Monday's Leftovers. You could always reheat them and enjoy them again, however I was hoping to find something a little more exciting. One of the things I thought of — I haven't tried it, but I thought it could be interesting — was to puree the remaining enchiladas (only if they were prepared meatless) and use it as a sauce for either a homemade pizza or a pasta sauce. I thought something like that might be great accompanying a scramble. What do you think? How would you turn leftover enchiladas into something new? Tell us your ideas in the comments below.

I once turned some botched flautas (like dry enchiladas) into a great tortilla soup. Get some onion, carrots, garlic, can of diced tomatoes and broth going in a pot, add chunks of enchiladas towards the end and heat through. The enchilada chunks will likely fall apart as you reheat them in broth, so maybe you'll end up with more of a stew.

I'd dice them up and stuff some poblano peppers with them to make something like chile rellenos. Then roast it off and then top it with a bit of cheese. Mmm.

If you made red chile enchiladas, they make a perfect base for fast and easy huevos rancheros. Just fry up some eggs and potatoes and serve. Although that soup sounds delicious!!

Make them into a soup. Sautee onions and garlic in a little olive oil. Add crushed tomatoes and chicken broth. Add some salt, red pepper flakes. Boil then simmer. Chop up the enchiladas (no meat) and add. Maybe even put in some cilantro. Once tortillas are soft, put the soup in the blender and puree. Yum. Serve with some sour cream, a little cheese and tortilla chips.
